Marvel X-Editor Jordan White Wants to Reboot Excalibur, Give Longshot a Solo Series

Ukulele-wearing, fedora-playing Marvel X-Editor Jordan White must have had a busy day at the office Monday, nearly forgetting to engage in the weekly X-Men Monday promotion on Twitter until it was time for his commute home from work. As a result, White decided to hold a Q&A on Twitter during his ride home.

White wasn’t the only one tweeting about X-Men Monday in the X-offices. Incoming Uncanny X-Men writer Kelly Thompson also shared a few panels from this week’s Mr. and Mrs. X #2:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
